General Development For years the development scene has been dominated by the C family of languages, primarily C itself and its immediate successor C++. Recent years have given rise to other C-descendents, however, such as Sun's Java and Microsoft's C#.

Frankly, C# is a no-go in my opinion as it is a Single-Sourced language. Sorry, seen what happens with those.

C and C++ and Objective-C: I have always loved C. Objective C is my choice for class based software (beats the hell out of C++). C++ if I am required to write for a MS platform. Can't spare the brain cells if MS decides to deep-six C# (don't say it can't happen, MS has done this in the past).

D will have to wait for now. There are plenty of languages out there already. I have yet to see one that "cures" all faults without introducing ones of its own.
